Ghana defender Baba Rahman has been handed his first start under interim Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink in the their FA cup game against Milton Keynes Dons on Sunday afternoon.

The Black Stars right-back will be playing his first game under interim boss after being sidelined since the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Rahman was growing in confidence when Mourinho was sacked and it was thought the departure of the Portuguese could boost his playing chances.

That dwindled drastically with the Ghanaian left on the bench or totally out of the squad in matches since Hiddink took over.

A good performance on Sunday could boost his chances of staying in the Chelsea squad and capturing a permanent place in the Blues squad.

Team to face MK Dons: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill Terry (c), Baba; Matic, Fabregas; Oscar, Loftus-Cheek, Hazard; Diego Costa
